Briggs: “Shameless” Garth Groupie

From the man who said, “There’s not much to me that tops waking up to Lee Greenwood,” it came as no great shock: Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs is a Garth Brooks groupie. After a headlines story that the country singer had sold out twenty shows in five hours, Dave revealed, “My favorite entertainer of all time!” To which, co-host Alisyn Camerota readily replied, “That does not surprise me.”

Co-anchor Clayton Morris mocked, “You [Dave] like it when he comes down on the wires. Like [sic] he swoops down, he gets all weepy.” Unapologetic, Dave declared, “I camped out for Garth Brooks as a young man. I love it. Every album, every song right here is in my I-Phone. I love him. I love him!”

In an effort to enlist meteorologist Rick Reichmuth in ribbing Dave further, Clayton said, “That’s the difference between…Rick, I camped out for Pink Floyd. What did you camp out for? However, unexpectedly coming to his office mate’s defense, Rick responded, “I actually, Garth Brooks is the…guy who got me into country music. He did. It’s amazing. He’s good!” Dave enthusiastically concurred, “Oh, me, too! He rocks!”

Shameless,” Dave!

    That’s interesting. In my case, Garth Brooks is the entertainer who got me OUT of country music (modern CMT “country” that is) and back to the real, old stuff. “Country” music has been ruined since the mid 90’s, IHOP.

    (I guess that’s Intl. House of Pancakes. I’m not that good at modern internet ‘shortcut’ slang.)

    Hgb3, you have just penned one of your most apt responses to date. Imo, Brooks should remain at Walmart: a talent hidden in the CD stack in the electronics section. Or, perhaps, revealed on occasion to drive George Jones to drink again and make more memorable music.

    Hi Jake,

    Carrie Underwood is spreading Country music across the world. She was here in town to perform a free concert at the opening of a local mall. Of course the fact that she’s drop dead gorgeous helps as well. Met her and yes I turned into a babbling fool!
